Pence, Harry E. – Journal of Educational Technology Systems, 2019
Artificial intelligence applications are becoming common in every segment of American life; higher education will not be immune. Attempts to fit artificial intelligence into the existing syllabus or teaching roles are unlikely to be successful and will waste a major opportunity to move higher education into new directions. Students graduating…

In this article, the authors describe how they "accidentally" developed an informal yet powerful way for them to connect with each other, debrief, deconstruct, detox, and demystify their respective new jobs as a department chair and college dean. They found a very natural way to connect with each other as women leaders. As two women…
